Bronchoscopy: Ask for a bronchoscopy. A flexible camera that looks at the inside of your lungs and upper airway. Can be done by a pulmonologist or thoracic surgeon.

Blood in sputum: You are already under care of your doctor. Blood in sputum for four weeks should not be ignored. If by now, you do not have a definite answer suggest seeing a pulmonologist. The causes may be gingival bleeding, bronchitis, sinus problems, tuberculosis, cancers, bronchial adenomas to name a few.
